    It is very pretty... I try and do some quilts that I keep back.. It is great having one that you can grab and wrap.. The others idea of a NICU is also very good if you choose to go that route..

    What a pretty baby quilt! I just love to do those too. I like to keep 1 or 2 around...(you never know when you might need 1), then I love to donate them to Project Linus.

    I LOVE your color scheme. I work in a large ER department and try to make baby quilts for those coworkers that are expecting and right now, you can tell it was a long winter, fall, etc. I am always looking for new, interesting fabric and patterns for baby quilts. Sometimes I take a larger one and scale it down. I love making the smaller size because it is so much easier to deal with on the machine. I can't handle a lot of it- I have tremors and my husband cuts for me. I have just recently discovered the new "x block" template and plan to use it on my next quilt.
    Do you always use just plain color? I almost always have a "theme" and sometimes I feel that it is overwhelming with all prints. Any hints or suggestions? I try to ask or hint around w/ the parents to be as to what they like or want for the nursery. One was a little girl that both mom and dad were fish maniacs and the quilt was unisex fishing until the very end when they found out it was a girl. So, it was finished in pink and purple binding. I am still a beginner after about 3 years of this- some day I'll be better. :lol:

    I don't know if I commented earlier or not, but I love the way it just flows. I'm w/ you- whomever said mine are less elaborate- I go with a theme and then try to figure out a pattern from there. I like the NICU idea- we have one at the hospital where I work and never thought to ask them if they needed any. I have such a short attention span, baby quilts are great for me and NICU quilts would be even smaller... :lol:

    Karen that is pretty. Can you tell me how big it is? I have to make 2 baby quilts for 2 different familes at church. I have some nice fabric but I'm just not positive what is a good size for one. I don't want a crib size, just a normal baby quilt. I haven't had babies for 35 years so just am not sure.

    thanks,
    Connie

    Connie,
    Not to move in on Karen's beautiful creation, but when I make baby quilts, I try to make them about the size of the batting, but lately I have been sticking with about 1- 11/2 yards because it is so easy to know the dimensions that way and figure out blocks, quarter triangles, etc. Crib batting is usually 45x60, but I bought cotton batting crib size and it was 48x60. I must say that baby quilts have been the only cotton battings I have soaked so they don't shrink or pucker. And it has worked well. I almost have the teddy bear toille done! :D
